Voices Magnified: Locked Up In America

Narrated by recording artist and actor Chris Ludacris Bridges, the special examines America’s prison system by giving an eye-opening look at the heartbreaking realities and life-altering consequences facing inmates, communities and the nation. OZY Media’s Carlos Watson moderates a conversation about the challenges and potential solutions to the current system between present-day inmates, who are calling in from prison phones across the nation, and two prison reform advocates. In a country where more people have been to prison than to college and where its citizens are incarcerated at a higher rate than any other nation, the discussion focuses on what actions are needed at the federal level to create positive change.
